To rate this anything less than 5 stars feels absolutely criminal.
Flawless in virtually every way, 2001: A Space Odyssey 's greatest achivement is that 50 years later, it still retains such a massive sense of intellect, visual bravura, and sense of scale and ambition that far exceeds any genre film from the years following.
Of course, that's without mentioning the absolutely phenomenal cinematography - literally every frame is memorable - and of course Hal 9000.
You could be forgiven for thinking 2001 is held up by cinephiles moreso for it's groundbreaking achivements, but make no mistake, 2001 is also a space experience that you won't find anywhere else. Period.
